You can run up hills, pump iron and swing kettlebells as hard as you like, but it counts for nothing without a proper rest and recovery program, explains race partner Blackroll.
When it comes to training, it’s all about balancing the yin and the yang. “To be successful in sport, you have to take breaks; to become stronger, you need training and sufficient recovery; to perform during the day, you need a good night’s sleep. Recovery after sport is just as important as the training itself,” says Blackroll’s Angela Erfurth.
The self-massage and regeneration brand has come on board as a partner with athletes receiving a recovery pack including foam roller, ball and loop band. Paul Guschlbauer who’s recovering from a broken leg and Laurie Genovese are brand ambassadors.
